Read Only Properties

These are properties that you can only read the value of, you cannot change their value.

Returns the number of items that have entered the End Point and hence exited the simulation.

Example:

 Set Var1 = End Point 1.Count Contents

Returns the number of incoming routes to the End Point.

Example:

 Set Var1 = End Point 1.In Count: Sets Var1 to the number routes that are connected to the End Point

Out Count

Returns the number of Outgoing routes from the End Point.

Example:

 Set Var1 = WorkComplete1.Out Count: Sets Var1 to the number routes that are connected from the End Point.

Lost Count

Returns the number of Work Items that have attempted entry but that were not able to enter.

Example:

 Set Var1 = End Point1.LostCount
